This song is Photography 101 in four minutes, and it will make your day
It’s May and catchy Christmas carols are finally out our heads. Even though it’s out of season, photographer Ed Gregory decided to sing one of the Christmas songs on his YouTube channel. But it comes with a twist – he made it about photography.
“12 Days of Photography” fits 12 photography tips into a 4-minute song. And while he and his buddy Dan Cooper have fun singing, Ed Gregory’s clone has troubles keeping up with them and demonstrating all the tips. If you’re a photography newbie, this is a certain way to memorize some of the rules. And for those of you who are more experienced – this will cheer you up if you’re having a bad day.
As Ed describes it, this is “everything you need to know about photography in one simpler (funny) song.” Of course, photography is much more than you can fit into a 4-minute song, but this was made just for fun, and it definitely is fun. You can observe it as a really fast photography 101, as a checklist you will memorize because it’s totally catchy, or simply as a sketch to brighten your day.
I especially love the demonstration of the histogram and shooting raw. I found it really funny and watched all the way to the end. It made me smile, and of course – I now can’t get it out of my head.
